DESPITE THE unstable political and economic situation and on-going crisis affecting Egypt, we are encouraged with recent happening. In Judges 14:14 it says, “out of the eater, something to eat, out of the strong, something sweet.” The Christian community in Egypt is more than five million and the different denominational churches have been experiencing much change in the past two years.
For the first time in the history of the Church in Egypt, the Coptics, Catholics and Protestants have united to form the Egyptian Church Committee, which is being led by Pope Bishop Tawadros. The committee wants to be seen as speaking with one voice and seeing with one vision as they work to deal with the government’s decisions and subsequent changes that affect the entire nation.
Please keep praying for Egypt.
